A COMMEMORATION of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War will be held at All Saints' Church, Deganwy.

The commemoration, on Wednesday November 7, will take the form of readings, most of which were written at the time, and reflect the horrors of the war and the feelings of those who lost loved ones. The names of the local men who are named on the war memorial in All Saints Church will be read out.

All Saints Church was awarded 10 of the: 'There But Not Here', life sized soldier silhouettes and they will be seated in the church as a reminder of those who died.

Pat Chapman, churchwarden of All Saints, has meticulously researched the lives of each of the servicemen named on the war memorial over the past four years. She said: "It is important that we never forget the huge contributions people made, and this memory is passed down to the younger generation."

During the commemoration the string section of Conwy Town Orchestra will play The Banks of Green Willow, by George Butterworth, who wrote the composition in 1913 but was killed in action on August 5, 1916, at Pozières, France and is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial.

The commemoration will include by the laying of a wreath by Cllr Sam Cotton, Mayor of Conwy.
